The one we're going to grab is from a 1959 Buick Invicta 2-door.....I think they are thge same? If not, someone let me know...lol..... (with a/c, oddly enough).
Next on the list is the electric fuel pump install, as the mechanical one bit the dust. It worked for awhile, but I think sitting dry for two decades did some damage....lol....
Anyhow, that's that! Glad to see some activity on the site recently, as well.

Also, we have the replacement tail panel tacked in place. That was an even bigger pain. A friend of mine is coming over to beat the panel straight and get it smooth, and we're all dine there.
Didn't get to the windshield or the trunk floor yet, but that's next.

greg pettit wrote:Glad you like the new letters.... That was a fun project. In the pic, the letters are just finger tight with one nut a piece, so they aren't really being held straight. They will be darn near perfectly aligned when we get 'em tightened up later.
As for the paint, well, I don't know what we're gonna do. For the short term, we are going to do the bodywork (it will be a learning experience for us) and spray the car some kind of satin black. Just a cheapy paint job that will be easy to remove when it's time to paint the car for real.
We have another project that needs to get underway ASAP, so I'm looking to get the olds running, driving, and reliable and then consider it done and drive it.
